IN THE CORRIDORS

The warmth of the welcome for Fidel Castro was met with a cold blast from the security guards on the balcony -- dragging one participant out, and injuring her in the process, on suspicion of holding a placard that said "�Viva Cuba!" A full apology was offered later by UN Security, and accepted by the NGOs. One NGO had his pass rescinded, but Security has failed to identify the other offending placard holders. One can only imagine what the reaction would have been to a protest!
